i think u can run it without the pulley on the steering pump and get a shorter belt, easy way.

Yup, my pressure line developed a leak and dumped fluid. I didn't have the needed tools at the time and don't have A/C on my 1.8L. I just cut the belt off and that was like 3 years ago LOL. I do intend to get a new line to help with low speed turning with my smaller wheel, plus the "lighter" feeling wheel with power allows me to make faster turns/transitions.

i believe you just take the lines off and turn the wheel back and forth until you've pumped all the fluid out. i may be wrong, but aren't you still pushing against the fluid if you just go to a shorter belt? kinda defeats the purpose if so

my guess would be if the pulley is off then it wouldn't have power since the pump isn't priming but with all the lines still attached it would probably help a little bit at a stand still
